    Had my ultrasound today. Baby is doing great! Saw and heard the heart beat which was 179 and even saw the baby move. The nurse said "Do you see the baby is moving!!" It still doesn't look quite like a baby yet, but I could see it's little arms. :cloud9: My husband who is in Afghanistan stayed up late and waited to hear from me. He was so happy too.

    I am attempting to attach a picture of the ultrasound. Hope everyone is having (or had) a great day!

    I still look fat :p I did have a bit of padding before, everything seems to have moved up tho. You can def tell a difference from my 5w pics and now but if you didnt know i was preg you wouldnt guess. I have a few maternity dresses tho and as they have the extra material for the big bump they sit funny atm, so I look nice and round in those!

    Im having scans at 20 28 32 and 36 ( growth scans later as they predict a man sized baby based on no evidence, sigh, i dont mind tho, more scans woo) so I reckon thats enough to sex the baby. A friend had her 20w and they could tell, Id be devastated! We waited long enough for this so I refuse to wait any longer. I reckon that the fact that a person is springing from my foof is enough of a surprise for me!

    Ive done quite a lot of shopping so far and gone with yellow and bright colours, even pink I reckon is fine on a boy as long as its a funky hot pink not a powder pink colour. Nursery is sunshine yellow and looks lovely tbh.

    Seems so long to wait now til 20w doesnt it. Dunno about you guys but I had scans at 5w 8w and 12w, and now two fricking months to wait! Hopefully will start feeling flutters soon which should b as reassuring as the scan.

    Hehe

    Was 16 months which doesn't seem so long now but it was torture when we were in it

    We've not done that much rly. Just painted and cleared the room. I've been collecting things from freecycle so needed somewhere to put em. Have a bottle feeding kit and a carseat/base so far. Dead pleased with the seat tbh. Saved us £200. Also joined all the baby clubs so have loads of free stuff. Probably only enough nappies to last a few days but it looks like loads ATM hehe

    Def worth joining all the baby clubs as you get loads of vouchers and free stuff. Means you can try things out at least :)

    Just the supermarket ones and chemists. They'd be different for you ofc but if you google baby clubs it should come up with stuff

    I had my 12 week/NT scan yesterday. Wasn't at all concerned with the NT scan - just opted for getting it done as I don't think I would have got a scan for at least 2-3 more weeks otherwise as booked at my first antenatal appointment. Was well worth the cost of getting it done (here they aren't covered by medicare unless you have a family history of Downs or age is a factor) as it was like half an hour long because the baby wasn't cooperating and showing off the nuchal fold. Bouncing and hiccuping and generally being squee worthy :cloud9: Got lots of pictures and DH was able to come along to this one. I'll likely just have one more scan at 20 weeks (by choice - I know there are no studies but I'm still concerned about the effects of ultrasound on development and hearing of the baby so don't want to risk additional scans if not necessary).
